Schools celebrate Dr. Seuss by Reading Across America

GREENVILLE – Our Lady of Lourdes sixth grader Elese Serio reads to Charles Beckham. The pair are dressed as characters from the Dr. Seuss book “The Cat in the Hat” to honor the author’s birthday. Schools across the nation marked the day with Read Across America activities. At Lourdes, students brought in gently used books in the weeks before Friday, March 2. On that day, students could ‘shop’ the used books to find one new to them. (Photo by Kathy Gower)
